Apocalyptic Adventure... I really liked this post-apocalyptic story because it was different from the usual mainstream apocalyptic stories but damn this son of a bitch was long!! It was like the author took every idea she ever wanted to write about it and threw it all into one book. It did have a lot of action though and kept me entertained but it seriously was like that Energizer Bunny commercial-it felt like it just kept going and going and going...
                                          
 
It took me so long to read the first half of the book, by the time I got to the second half, I forgot half the shit that happened in the first 300 pages. 
 

 
Definitely needs to be shortened & polished. If you need a book to keep you occupied for a couple of weeks this is it! ( )

Meh. Post apocalypse - solar flare and EM pulse sterilised the surface of the world, humanity is just about surviving in scattered enclaves living off tinned food from the Time Before. Which sort of works as a premise for a novel, but the plotting is inconsistent, and there's too much preachy overtones larded through the top as a moral message presumably. Having the saviours of humanity be a select tribe of mormon offshoots is also a bit unlikely. The end third drags horrendously before the contrived showdown finally appears.

We follow three people each from one enclave as for various reasons they have to leave. Inevitably they all end up in the same place, chasing the same goal - the possibility that viable seeds still exist. ( )
